This old restaurant is designated as a national tangible cultural property. The natural Akita Cedar planks that were used luxuriously in the great hall are a sight not to be missed. Visitors can feel the prosperity of its heyday.
The Noshiro Tanabata Festival has been held since long ago. These enormous lantern floats that were used in the Edo and Meiji eras have been revived. Some are as high as 24.1 meters!
This park is famous for cherry blossoms in the spring and fall colors in the autumn. It is named “Kimimachi,” which means waiting for you, because a letter was waiting here to be delivered to Emperor Meiji while he was touring northeastern Japan.
